Welcome to Naas Community National School
Here at Naas CNS, we have a strong belief that happy children learn best. We strive each day towards creating and maintaining a school environment which is welcoming, nurturing and inclusive for all members of our school community.
Since we first opened 2010, each year our school continues to go from strength to strength, with wonderful achievements across the learning spectrum.
We are proud to have won awards for Excellence in Primary Science and Maths and in Creative Arts. Our pupils have showcased their talents in the Primary Science Fair, Intel Mini Scientist, Peace Proms and Junior Entrepreneur programme. We have been privileged to forge strong links within the community, with regular visits to our wonderful neighbours in Craddock House Nursing Home and volunteering at Naas Food Bank.
All of these wonderful achievements and many more besides are only possible because of all the hard work put in by our pupils, day after day, working and learning together as a TEAM.
